Blake Shelton is not just a great singer but also a person with a huge heart. The “Lonely Tonight” singer is being deemed a hero for rescuing a group of strangers stranded in a mud hole in Oklahoma.

The incident took place last week when the 39-year-old was en-route to his Oklahoma home and saw a group of men who had become stuck in a mud hole near a river. The survivor, Bryar Blanton, who was stuck in the mud hole for about two hours and was later rescued by Shelton, has come out on Twitter to thank the musician and also posted a picture with him.

“After ‪@blakeshelton pulled me out!” Blanton wrote on Twitter. According to Entertainment Tonight, Shelton rescued Blanton, his cousin Lenyell Blanton, and close friends Josh Turner and Adrian Poplin, who were stuck in a mudslide near the Washita River in Ardmore, Oklahoma, on Friday.

“Me and my buddies were checking out the river, when some of my buddies [accidentally] slid into a big mud hole and got stuck for about two hours," Blanton told the website. "Me and Adrian started walking down the road [looking for help] and [that's when] Blake and his dog, Betty, stopped and picked us up in his truck."

When Shelton's truck couldn’t pull them to safety, “he said he’d be back in 15 minutes with his tractor. He came back and got us out and chatted for a minute and talked to us about hunting.” Blanton also added that the singer is a very caring man and if it wasn't for him, they would have been stuck in the mud for a long time.

“And yeah I would say he is a hero,” Blanton added. After saving Blanton and his friends, Shelton also chatted with them for sometime and even got clicked.
